The sample consisted of (8) women, ages range was between 22-50 years. The sample of the study was determined by the application of the Beck Depression Scale and Standardized to the Jordanian Environment and approved by the Royal Medical Services as a diagnostic tool for women diagnosed with depression disorder and those who reviewed the psychiatric clinic. A single group pre-post test design was used in the study to examine the outcome of solution-focused therapy SFT in regards to reducing symptoms of depression. The Wilcoxon signed-rank test was used to analyze the data. The pre-treatment Beck Depression Scale scores were compared with post-treatment scores to evaluate the outcome of SFT. Results indicate significant differences in the Beck Depression Scale scores at pre- to post-treatment (T = 3; Wilcoxon T= 0.12, p = 0.05). This implies that the SFT was successful in reducing the symptoms of depression in the participants’ group.
